She’s no Caroline / Sarah but I wouldn’t kick her out of bed…

If I ever see a comment like this on one of my posts again, the offending party will be blocked, banned and blacklisted. Not that I can actually ban people but you get my point.

Maybe I’m just tired of Nina being described as ‘pretty’ to Sarah Lancashire’s ‘magnificent’ in a number of direct and indirect ways, the #teamlancashire/caroline bollocks that sprung up on tumblr during series 2 of LTiH which I wish I’d never read, having screencaps I’ve made being used on Facebook without credit by someone who you follow, of reading someone on twitter complain about her being ‘as ubiquitous as Olivia Colman’ because she was on two shows at once in March, as if her 10 mins of screen time on Shetland as well as however much screentime she had in W1A was just too much. Maybe these are the reasons why I’ve had a sense of humor failure.

To the person on Facebook who is using my pics, I don’t mind them being used by you on your page but please give me a shoutout. Thank you!

daviekd said: Loved her in this especially episode one and often wondered whether it was this performance that was in mind when she was cast on LTIH as they were both produced by Red Production.

Yeah, that is a thought! I wonder if she had to audition for LTiH. I don’t think the main four cast members did, I think they were offered the parts and just had to accept or decline them but what about the rest of the cast?

Scrap that. I don’t know what I’m talking about.
